Shylock's Mock Appeal
4 days ago
Howard Jacobson applauds the granting of an appeal by Shylock in a mock trial in Venice as a symbolic revoking of a bad decision in Shakespeare's play.
"It's natural to rage against wrong decisions, miscarrriages of justice or the inclemencies of nature, but the more fanciful of us go further and imagine that some power will intervene and make things right again."
Producer: Sheila Cook.
Rated 4 out of
a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
conservatives today could unscrew their faces once and get a clue. Everyone does
what they want without regard to national political agendas.
